Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!

Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!

Series: Pigeon (Book #1)
by Mo Willems Illustrated by Mo Willems

The bus driver is leaving for a little while and has one simple request: Don't let the pigeon drive the bus! It won't be easy; this bird is pushy. And he can be very persuasive.

First, he'll ask nicely and will promise to be careful. Then he'll give lists of reasons why he should be driving. Eventually, he'll just melt down. But will any of his attempts work?

This simply (but delightfully) illustrated story puts kids in the driver's seat, letting them decide the difference between right and wrong.
